Join Lacawac’s Commemorative Brick Campaign

March 30, 2016

LAKE ARIEL, PA — Lacawac Sanctuary is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and friends and supporters are invited to leave their personal imprint on its history and future through participation in its Commemorative Brick Campaign. You can help celebrate the sanctuary’s anniversary through the purchase of an engraved brick that will be placed at the entrance of the Coulter Visitor Center and Dr. Susan S. Kilham Environmental Laboratory.

Since 1966 the mission of Lacawac Sanctuary has been to preserve the nearly pristine glacial Lake Lacawac, its watershed, the surrounding forest and historic structures in order to provide a venue for ecological research, scholarly interaction and the training of scientists; and provide public education on environmental and conservation issues. Lacawac has accomplished this mission by offering a diverse set of natural areas, facilities and programs for grades Pre-K through 12, post-secondary educators and students, area residents, scientific researchers, and summer visitors to the region.
The brick campaign will allow Lacawac to raise the necessary funds to make upgrades to its visitor center and historic 1903 lodge. Each donated and engraved brick will be carefully placed in a new walkway leading visitors and guests to the entrance of the Coulter Visitor Center.

You can get a four-by-eight-inch brick for $100, with three lines of text, 20 spaces per line; or an eight-by-eight-inch brick for $250, with six lines of text and 20 spaces per line. Bricks can be ordered online at
